SIGMA® Laser Stent and Tube Cutter more Practical and Efficient

Monrovia, CA – Amada Miyachi America Inc., a leading manufacturer of laser welding, marking, cutting and micro machining equipment and systems, announces a comprehensive system wide upgrade to its SIGMA Laser Stent and Tube Cutter, which can be configured with either microsecond fiber or femtosecond lasers. Featuring 3 or 4 axes of motion, wet and dry cutting, an automated tube loader option, and easy access to sub-assemblies, the updated system can cut stents and tubes with diameters from 0.2 to 25 millimeters. The operator-friendly control software features a 22-inch graphic user interface (GUI) on a swing arm. The SIGMA system has been designed for efficient production and practical operation. New features include an open architecture with excellent work space access and a sliding door which provides quick access for part unloading and set up changes. In addition, all service components are now on drawers that can be easily accessed. The system also features high precision high acceleration linear drive stages that optimize cycle time, a 2-inch Z axis and optional lineal stage cross axis for off-axis cutting, and a smart water supply system that controls and monitors flow. A single-screen operator interface facilitates ease of use with password-protected access levels. The tooling path can be optimized using either CAGILA CNC programming software or another CAD/CAM post-processing software.

Two different laser source options are available. The microsecond fiber laser offers excellent beam quality and high pulse repetition rates for high speed precision cutting. The femtosecond laser provides best in class cut quality using cold ablation cutting to produce unrivalled edge quality that significantly reduces post processing costs.

Enclosure options include Class 1 systems in both open and closed frame, and Class 4 systems, customized to specific integration, access and loading speed requirements.

Applications and processes are optimized in Amada Miyachi America laboratories, and delivered with each system.
